The ambitious 2001 UEFA Champions League semi finalists have unveiled 15 new signings who include Paraguayan Brian Montenegro, Brazilian Adryan and 19 year old Italy International Dario Del Fabro on a season long loan.
The Yorkshire based club has now added Senegalese striker cum winger Souleymane Doukara on a three year deal who had initially joined the club on a temporary basis from Italian outfit Catania.
His arrival does not change the number of players at the club but it is worth pointing out that Leeds now has a squad of 36 players.
Nicknamed Dudu, Doukara started his professional career during the 2008-09 season playing for Rovigo Calcio in the Lega Pro Seconda Divisione. He went on to play for AC Milan’s youth team before crossing countries to Switzerland where he had an unsuccessful stint at Grasshopper Club Zurich in the Swiss Super League.
Doukara officially signed with Serie A giants Catania and made his Italian debut in 2012. He served as a back up to Argentine Internationals Gonzalo Bergessio and Maxi Lopez. On 11 July this year, he joined Leeds United on a loan deal before the agreement was made permanent on transfer deadline.
Although he was born in France, he is eligible to play for Senegal through both of his parents. In April this year, he announced his desire to play for the Terranga Lions. He was, however, not called to do duty in this Friday’s AFCON qualifier against Egypt at Stade Leopold Sedar in Dakar.
